some of the problems within the republican party that rush limbaugh now has become the voice. of course, that was strategy by obama, the obama administration to focus on rush limbaugh, who while he has many fans also has many people who don't like rush limbaugh or so i think right now there is a fight within the republican party to find its leadership. i think that would be very decisive and important election for republicans. at this point i don't think they can regain control of congress. but if they lose badly in 2010 will see a push within the republican party to turn more moderate. >> the conservative ascendancy came out of 2007. and now you have a new book out. it is cowritten with nancy maclean, the american conservative movement, 1945 to the president. first of all, why did you start in 1945? >> i think modern conservatism really emerges that appeared to have been conservatives before the second world war. it is primarily a modern movement. so that's why we began in 1945. >> but why, what happened in 1945? >> i think primarily the emergence of the communist issue and the cold wa
problems, too. >> and limbaugh whines he was compared to nazis and then a moment later compares his critics to nazis. all that and more now on "countdown." >>> good evening from new york. at some point in the future you or a loved one will be dying. you will want to know all the options and their implications. thanks to the republican party today, sarah palin, senator chuck grassley and others, thanks to them, if you cannot afford to have your doctor at your side for those questions, you will face death on your own. how sarah palin's functional illiteracy and senator's dysfunctional pandering just killed reimbursement for end of life counseling. senator grassley, top republican of the finance committee put out a statement today saying, quote, we dropped end of life provisions from consideration entirely because of the way they could be misinterpreted. misinterpreted, of course, by him. deliberately to his constituents. on tape. as, quote, death panels. quoting the aarp a sensationalized misinterpretation of a common sense compassionate and bipartisan measure. a misinterpretation that the go
that was written by rush limbaugh. >> where i am coming from, the press got almost everything about this campaign wrong at various stages, starting with the fact it was going to be routed guiliani verses hillary clinton election year. it's stymied people because they just did not know what to make of this, the first black presidential candidate that had a chance of winning and one of the most bizarre things that i thought of the press was to see a largely white political press corps just assume that whites more races around the country and would not vote for him. when he won in iowa, the shock to the press corps was extraordinary. could not believe that hillary clinton was not mopping this guy up. throughout the campaign, and this happened in the liberal media as well as non-partisan media. there was this feeling that every white person in western pennsylvania hates black people and will not -- and will vote against him. they assumed the country was racist when it was not in terms of the bombing. >> if we fall to around all week and if you invite us we will, what would we see? when i read your co
limbaugh, all these people saying the birthers are out of their mind. kind of interesting. we'll see what happens. willie geist, i swear you have made broadcasting history again. >> barnacle sits over here during way too early, which is distracting enough in its own right, but he's critiquing the show as it goes. telling me, no good, i won't make it. >> joe and i realize we can say we are here at the beginning exactly. it's like being present when milton beryl came out. >> or the big bang. >> a big story, bill clinton touching down. we begin with breaking news. former president bill clinton is in north korea on behalf of the obama administration. he's trying to negotiate the release of those two jailed american journalists. reporters euna lee and laura ling sentenced to 12 years of hard labor for illegally crossing the border. adrian joins us live from beijing -- she's not with us right now. we'll try to get back to her. pat buchanan, let me ask you. what do you think is going on here. can you remember a precedent for something like this? >> i think jimmy carter -- jesse jacks
were going the air and callg the presidenof the united states a nazi as rush limbaugh has repeated done. when mark levin-- yomentioned hi- he said the president of the united stes is literally at w with the american people. and then people begi unsurprisingly, showing upt rallies withuns. wellobviously, if the president were. i mean, folks, if i bieved the president of the united statewere a nazi, re planning a fascist takeov, it would be contemptibly cowardly ofe not too everything in my power, including contemplatg violen, to resist such a thin every decent person ould do that. that's why you don say it when it's not true. and i mean, one of the ws that the constitution system works is with me understanding that thpeople on the other side ha slightly different priorities, but they share yr constitutional vues. they have invested in thsame stem. the problems they've got a hard problems. and evenf you don't like their answers, you have to have so restraint inhe way you talk about them, as you would hop they would have out you. and i think it'sust trageous. it is dangerous. it's dangerou
of stations that have a the limbaugh and a mark of nine who, my god, i think he sold more books so far than the gutenberg bible. i didn't see that incoming. but we decided that we weren't going to choose sides and i was glad to be conservative and say what i believed and callers did not really get that either. into that about a month to figure out that you to run in talk radio show with having a hyper partisan year in and be applied that to our tv show also "morning joe" when it started and is working. the remarkable thing happens when you let people, on your set and you don't scream at them and call them a marxist or a fascist. they want to come back. [laughter] and they tell their friends, you ought to go on the show. and so now we are honored to have great calmness and authors like gail collins and a lot of pulitzer prize winners to come on and we disagree, but it is a civil tom. it is a civil tone. i have gambled, i am a conservative guy, not as much as my dad who thinks nixon got framed, but i'm a conservative guy. [laughter] but there's just not the hyper partisanship there, i think t
of rush limbaugh whose website compares the reform supporters to nazis. a conservative group that's backing the protest insists the anti-reform movement is there. how do you respobd to the charge that this is all orchestrated and artificial if it's coming from talk show hosts and websites? >> reporter: if that were the case, you wouldn't see the massive turnout. the average person is at work when rush limbaugh is on the radio. >> reporter: out of nowhere, a bystander listening in came up to us to say ditto. >> thank you very much. >> you happen to agree with this gentleman? >> i do. >> reporter: democrats are flexing their grassroots. the former obama volunteers are back in campaign mode. >> we have folks who are anxious about change who love to play the fear card. >> reporter: it's about facts not fear. but time and again, he falsely compared democratic health care proposals to a canadian style universal system. >> the ones coming out the house are not canadian style. you know that? >> universal health care in any way, shape, or form is a bad notion. >> reporter: as for senator j
at these town hall meetings. rush limbaugh calling them nazis and now nancy's calling these protesters un-american. what a colossal mess. we had the poll last week saying obama washington is divisive. it's just this is a mess. what do you do if you're inside the white house? how do you call a time-out and say enough already? >> i don't know how you do it, joe. joe, i'm afraid that all the beginning of the obama a administration, you are down there on the mall that's thousands and thousands of people that air of good feeling and national unity and the belief that obama may just be that agent of change that can bring us together i'm afraid that has all dissipated and is all but gone. he's not down to bush levels but he's down to the point where he about won the election but it is a much more divisive situation. this is one of the ugliest debates i've ever seen. >> it is. it's ugly. you know, mika, we had said this before, several months ago, that every president over the past 16 years, 17 years, said they're going to change washington. bill clinton was going to bring us all together. divisi
is she mangles a whole bunch of facts, but she also gets some signs off that rush limbaugh. go ahead and copy number of things she says that are wrong. roll the tape. >> you might have heard their philosophical leader, i think his name is rush limbaugh. and he said early on i hope that he does. you know what that means? if the president, your commander-in-chief fails, america fails. now, when a senator says that this will be his waterloo, and we all know what happened at waterloo, then we have him and he fails. do we want a failed state of the united states russian ark so remember, they are spreading fear and they are trying to see that the first president who looks like me fails. and i want you to know, people look at the united states as a country that has changed its way and has elected someone from kenya and kansas. i will put it like that. >> that's quite a headline again. did you know that wreck obama was from kenya and kansas westerner and i think it's from fighting to eisenhower was from kansas. i'm from kansas. stu and his mother is from kansas and his father is from kenya.
, president obama. it is against everything he is trying to do. you loud mouths like rush limbaugh, sean hannity, all these other folks that you listen to daily, even my good friend joe scarborough, it is ridiculous. all you are trying to do is disrupt something a needs to be done for all people. not just your people and the people you e-mail and try to get something done to disrupt something. host: let's hear from our guest. guest: we have been opposing big government for 25 years. doesn't matter who is proposing it. we proposed many of george bush's policies that were encroachments into people's lives. we opposed bill clinton's tax hikes. we opposed george bush role one's tax hikes. it has nothing to do with president obama. it has to do with healthcare reform going in the wrong direction. we've got a lot of ideas and none of them is it the current legislation and we think it takes it entirely in the wrong direction so we are opposed to the policy. host: how many members does freedomworks claim? >> we have over 700,000 members that we have built up the last 25 years. host: free to jo
limbaugh -- because we do need both. rush limbaugh rallies the crowd and is a good job of educating people on issues. but you will rarely hear him say call congress. it is other voices is a call congress or go to your tea party. we need a variety of voices. the problem in the blogosphere, and we are really bad about this compared to the left, is if i do something at red state, a protest, there's going to be someone who will spend 10,000 words writing why i either should not do it or if i would just do it their way instead of my way it would be more effective. you get that everywhere, but the right is notorious about everyone wants to be the next rush limbaugh or george will or glenn back. -- glen beck. i am a big believer at throwing stones are republican politicians have gotten out of line. [applause] as i said this morning, we are rapidly getting to a situation where we may just take back the house and it will hurt us because we have not learned all the lessons we need to learn. that's why we need to grow a lot of stone's right now so they figure things out before next year. inly the ri
is not that we need pundits or activists, we need both. rush limbaugh rallies in the crowd, does a good job of educating people on the issues. others are the ones you rarely will hear calling congress. we need a variety of voices. the problem of the blogosphere is the writing. if i do something that protests, there will be someone who will spend 10,000 words writing why i either should not do it or if i would do it their way instead of my way it will be much more effective. you get that everywhere. the right is notorious about that, everyone wants to be the next rush limbaugh or gen -- george will. the problem is when we start throwing stones to each other as opposed to throwing stones at the other side. i am a big believer at throwing stones at republican politicians who have gotten out of line. [applause] as i said this morning, we are rapidly getting to a situation where we may just take back the house, and it will hurt us, because we have not learned all the lessons we need to learn. we can throw a lot of stones right now. in the right blogosphere, you have some a competing voices is th

rush limbaugh and everybody else tried to destroy john mccain. i didn't want john mccain to win the nomination because i didn't think he was conservative enough. guess what, john mccain won the nomination anyway. playing to the hard, hard, hard right base will not win primaries. don't you agree. >> look, i agree -- i think palin could get into finals. i basically agree with this but look at this. the red hot radio stuff. look where the country is, three of the top four best selling books on the "new york times" list, mark levin, dick morris, number one best seller on the paper back, glen beck, orielle number ten there. the country is in an angry populist mood. the bumper stickers, death panels, it's not sophisticated, but i'll tell you what is igniting these people, they have simple ideas and they are angry. >> sure, pat. the same thing igniting people on the left that said there was no god. you can read in 2003, 2004, god is dead. the god delusion, all a reaction to george w. bush, it's very natural. it will sell books, drive up ratings. it will not win elections. willie, we've
